Mobility training – animal walks

Staying mobile is really important to me. I want to be able to hike any mountain anytime. Go for a 50 bike ride cause there’s a beer waiting for me. Do manual labor cause a friend needed some help.

I did yoga pretty seriously for a few years. Even got my 200 hour training course done. The issue I have with yoga is that it’s a little too focused on stretching in ways that my body just isn’t equipped for. Namely hamstrings.

With that in mind I started focusing on body exercises a few years ago mainly so I could work on a farm for a summer. I really enjoy the movements and can feel stronger in many ways.

The next level of body weight training I’m looking into is mobility training. The video below is one of the next tutorials I’ve seen so far.

Sounds like Google is Uber for office workers. It does not appear to help create a very conducive culture all around.

I work remotely but feel a sense of culture that most of my office jobs have not had. Being fully employed is a big part of this as it gives one level of equality. Open meetings with the entire company is critical. Free access and encouragement to speak freely with anyone on the company is also critical. Companies and cultures die in silence.

While I might miss some water cooler banter I am also missing the micro aggressive non-verbal bullshit that is constantly rampant in any office space. Since I work for the work and not the social ness of my workers this seems like a good trade off.

Yes I like my coworkers and think I would probably hang out with most of them if we lived near each other. However I spend enough time outside of work to have a healthy social life.
